The goblin emoji is another emoji inspired by Japanese traditions and customs: hardly surprising given that emojis originated from Japan. It looks like a mask rather than an actual head, and is bright red with an oversized, long, tubular nose. It has a bushy moustache and equally bushy eyebrows which are drawn into a frown, and its mouth is drawn down into a scowl. It represents Tengu, a spirit which features in Japanese mythology and folktales. They’re generally quite mischievous and occasionally malevolent, though also quite protective. As an emoji, the goblin is mainly used to demonstrate anger and short temperedness, particularly when sleep deprived.

From a girl, this emoji can convey a multitude of sentiments. Rooted deeply in Japanese tales, it can imply she's channeling the tengu's spirited nature. Maybe she's hinting at feeling playful or slightly annoyed.
In Western contexts, without the cultural anchor, this emoji often gets used as a representation of trolling, mischief, or just general cheekiness. It can signal that she's in a playful mood, maybe even a little naughty.
Always consider the backdrop. It might be her way of connecting with Japanese tales or simply indulging in some playful banter. But, if it pops up during a disagreement, she might be pointing out sly behavior.
